Market Report, "Smoking Tobacco in South Africa", published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Aug 26 2015

While pipe tobacco is traditionally used by older Afrikaans and black South Africans, RYO tobacco is used primarily by younger South Africans in lower-income groups. It is used by those who wish to save money by rolling their own cigarettes, as well as by those who use it to mix with cannabis/marijuana.

Competitive Landscape

Philip Morris South Africa (Pty) Ltd led smoking tobacco in 2013 with a volume share of 37%. Four of the company’s brands fell into the top five brands within smoking tobacco, namely Best Blend, Boxer, Borkum Riff and Dingler’s Nineteen O’Four.

Industry Prospects

Whilst authorities have been increasingly clamping down on illicit cigarettes in South Africa, their presence is still significant enough as to pose a threat to the sale of smoking tobacco as many consumers who are currently opting for RYO tobacco due to its lower unit price may instead choose to purchase illicit cigarettes which are ready to smoke (and therefore offer a greater level of convenience) and sell for an even lower price.
